Overview

Developing a website for mobile devices, I hosted the site within IIS on my Windows 7 development machine. I wanted to give access to this site from another device on the LAN.

Solution

The culprit is Windows 7 Firewall. To enable HTTP access through Windows Firewall on Windows 7, execute the following procedure.

  • Control Panel > Windows Firewall
  • Left side menu: link for "Allow a program or feature through Windows Firewall"
  • Change settings button
  • Scroll the bottom of the list and enable "World Wide Web Services (HTTP)".
